American forces in Kuwait organized a competition to select the best battalion in the US Central Army.
The competition, which included participants from the Arifjan and Buehring camps, was held from May 6 to May 11 in the training field in Adeira area, reports Al-Anba daily.
The competition started with a total of 14 teams of US forces in the two camps, each consisting of 5 participants, and five of these teams reached the final qualifiers.
The competition included gruelling qualitative tests aimed at enhancing the combat efficiency of the soldiers and exploring their capabilities in various military fields, physical fitness rates, and their ability to carry out tactical tasks and solve problems, as well as the use of the latest modern technologies in the battlefield to confront any emergency aggression.
Staff Sergeant Brian Disick of the US Army Central in Kuwait, who was in charge of the competition, praised Kuwait for hosting the American forces.
He spoke about the nature of his mission in Kuwait, which he started three years ago, explaining that, “The objective behind holding such competitions is to spread the spirit of competition between the soldiers and the different battalions in order to achieve the best possible readiness to face any emergency and discover the maximum limits of their capabilities. These competitions challenge their physical and mental capabilities and their ability to work together.”
He expressed his happiness with the facilities provided by Kuwait to the American forces, which he described as complete and excellent.
Staff Sergeant Disick said, “Kuwait is an important strategic and logistical partner, and we are very happy to be in this country. We do not have any difficulties or problems. Everything is going well.”
